conference a mistake, mr. keene? >> not at all. and, fortunately, we're not on broadway. this isn't a joke. you know, we remained silent right after newtown because we didn't think it was appropriate to comment at time. but now we've come out and looked at it and the question on everybody's minds we tried address is what do you do to prevent this from happening in the future? you know, it was interesting, bob, because that week i was in israel. and they had a spate of school shootings in the 70s and they decided they needed to have security at their schools. they started out with volunteers. they eventually institutional tides and now they have armed security at the schools and they stopped the problem. in this country-- and although the reaction from our critic was, well, this is a crazy idea. the fact is, 23,000 schools right now, have armed security guards. they have them in chicago. they have them in many schools in virginia. it was propose bided by bill clinton the year after the columbine shooting and they set up legislation called cops in the school program. has not been fully

. now, it's time to get busy over at the woodshop and do this beautiful door treatment together out of cherry. and you know what? it's an easy project. you just break it down into little pieces. follow me. before we get started on the project, make sure that you always read, understand, and follow all the instructions that come with the tools and products you use in your workshop. work safely. these are safety glasses. now, look at this new table-saw system. see how that guard rises and falls with the blade? well, that's important, because this european-style riving knife is going to be where it should to prevent kickbacks, and there's a kickback pulse as well. plus, there's one other feature that i really like. this split in the top of the guard -- well, when this guard is locked in place, you can sight straight down the split, and you can see exactly where the cut's being made. now, over here, the planer -- this is a new type of planer. it uses dozens of these knives that are bolted onto the head, and it gives me a cut that is absolutely unparalleled. so, we'll make some cuts here an

around africa to the except i would hold a kid's hand at the hospital and have a picture taken and i didn't want to be a-- and with the reading i read there is no tragedy like the one in congo where millions of people have died and it made a big impression on me. i thought if i don't know about this, i'm sure there are others as well. >> schieffer: you went there. you have been there a number of times. teal me about your organization. >> it's called the eastern congo initiative. the first year i learned about it i wante i want travel. i traveled to a lot of countries and focused on eastern congo ultimately, and we do kind of like a top-town, bottom-up. from the bottom up we do grant making to condolease organizations only, folks already in the area, already working and need the support of resources. and i do a top-down advocacy, like being boog on your show and testifying before the house. >> schieffer: you reveal some absolutely stun stunning statistics in your testimony-- 900,000 people have been dislocated in the country since january. two out of three women in some areas have b

much at stake. >> schieffer: in all seriousness, i'm told mitch mcconnell laughed when you handed in this proposal. is that true? >> they're in a hard position, bob. they really are in a difficult position. and they're going to have to figure out their politics of what they do next and they're trying to figure that out right now. we're going to work very hard at this and we're going to keep talking to each other. and, again, i think we have a very good chance for coming together on an agreement that not just protects 98% of americans from a tax increase and protects the economy from deeply damaging upfront spending cuts and protects the med from leaving us vulnerable to, you know, periodic threats of defaults by politicians, i think we can do better than that and do something good for the long-term future of the american economy. >> schieffer: did you think democrats will support these tax increases? >> the tax increases in the president's plan? oh, yeah, absolutely. again, again, if you listen carefully to the political debate, there's very broad-based support now and recognition of

student, six adult women who worked at the school. the president will attend a memorial service later today. he will visit with the families. many of the early details about what happened were wrong. we are now getting a better handle on what did happen, but so far no one seems to know exactly what motivated the shooter, 20-year-old adam lanza. we're going to begin our coverage with the spokesman for want connecticut state police, lieutenant paul vance. lieutenant, thank you so much for finding time for us. you said something yesterday that you thought the search of the various crime scenes had been successful, and you might have found something that would help us understand the why and the how of this. what can you tell us about that? >> well, i can tell you, certainly, the major crime detectives of the state police have been working continuously since this tragedy unfolded, searching not only the initial crime scene at the school, but a secondary crime scene that we also discovered during the investigation. investigators have executed a number of search warrants and many, many diffe

cheer at the capitol. old santa tried to reward congressional inaction with a lode of coal, but wouldn't you know there was no one around to give it to. congress skedaddled when the deal on the fiscal cliff collapsed. the national rifle association's top command did stay in town to ask the question we've all been asking. >> what do we do about the tragedy of the sort that struck in newtown connecticut? >> schieffer: but their response left gun control advocates reeling. we'll talk to the profit n.r.a., wayne keene. and we'll hear from senator mark warner of virginia, and kay bailey hutchison of texas. we'll also talk to the first black senator from the south since reconstruction, newly designated south carolina senator tim scott. plus, we'll hear from actor ben affleck on, among other things, reports he may seek the senate seat being vacated by john kerry. who has just been nominated to be the next secretary of state. >> well, one never knows. i'm not one to get into conjecture. >> schieffer: why not? we do, because this is "face the nation." captioning sponsored by cbs from cbs

don't get the country back on a sound financial footing. the two sides are still at loggerheads. i guess i would start this morning by mr.-- and mr. bowles, why don't you go first-- is all this just posture or are they really going to let us go over this fiscal cliff? >> lord, i hope not bob. i think it would be disastrous for the country if we did. you know, you can look at the forecast that we have, economic growth would slow, you know, by 4%. that, by definition, puts you back into recession when you're only growing by 2%. about two million people would lose their jobs. unemployment would go to 9%. you know, you can already see the effects of it-- you look at businesses, they're slowing their head count by atricks they're saying they're going to have to lay people off. they're going to cut their capital expenditures. they're going to cult their investments. they're already holding cash. moody's and fitch have said they would lower our credit rating. that would cause our interest rate to go up. i don't think the stock market has facted on factored this in. i think it would be a d

talking about inflation at a moment when people are paying us money to invest in our treasury bonds. you know, the summer before last, when we had the debt ceiling negotiations, and everybody was saying oh, our credit is about to go down the tubes. the price of u.s. treasury bonds were going up. so the fact is that we have a problem. i'm hoping that we'll deal with it, especially, you know, the old age entitlementes, because sooner or later, you and i are going to be old enough to qualify for medicare, and we're going to at the present time to be a good system. but we i think a little rationality is called for. >> schieffer: you're saying it's not as bad as it seems. the fact of the matter swhen the bush tax cuts run out at the end of the year, when payroll tax-- whatever they call it, runs out at the end of the year, people's taxes are going to go up. they may not be a crisis for some of the upper income folk but if you're down the line there, that's a big deal. >> and i fully believe that's going to be taken care of. but if you remember, when the clinton tax cuts-- tax rates were impos

sense at the end-- >> schieffer: you think they'll actually do something. >> absolute, because if they don't-- >> schieffer: beyond kicking it down the road? >> absolute. if they don't address these issues, if they don't scale back the cliff and raise the debt ceiling and address long-term fiscal issues we have a huge problem on ourselves hands. i think the political star are aligned. the president has his legacy. he's a second-term president and i think he really wants to address this and i think the republicans want to address it as well. so i think we'll get it together. >> schieffer: underline for me again, what happens if they don't get a deal? number one, taxes go up for everybody. >> yeah. so the first thing that happens on january 1, everybody's tax rate-- everybody, everybody in this room, across america-- tax rates will go up >> because the bush tax cuts expire. >> because the bush-era tax cuts expire and everybody's tax rates go up. and then we have a boat load of spending cuts. as part of various deals we have a big cut to defense budget, nondefense. add up it it's 4.5
